Kuala Lumpur Highland Games Cross Country Race
The bagpipes are back! The Kuala Lumpur Highland Games has returned after a momentous success last year. Like last year, visitors can expect a wide variety of wild Scottish activities as well as fancy food and beverage stalls and even a children’s entertainment village.
And the most exciting event of them all is the Kuala Lumpur Highland Games Cross Country race! It just wouldn’t be Scottish if there wasn’t a horde of lumbering warriors barreling over the hill, would it? Come join in the fun now and make sure you register so you don’t miss out!
In addition to the race there will be a great number of physically intensive trials for you to test your Scottish mettle, such as the tug-o-war, the hammer throw and the super crazy caber toss (that quintessential Scottish thing where you throw an entire log). Expect bigger and better things this year as we celebrate all things Scottish at Bukit Kiara Equestrian and Country Resort on the 17th of May 2015!
